Hello there inmates!

Welcome to the first of a new century of Harlequins writing music posts! How are you all? It’s great to see you. It’s been a fairly uneventful week for me at the asylum this time. I’ve been keeping myself busy with my writing of course, but also a particularly amazing new video game release called Tales of Arise. Absolutely loving it so far. I’d recommend it to anybody that enjoys good old fashioned JRPGS. Yes, I’m still a gaming nerd. No, I’m not sorry.

So, anyways, enough about video games. You’re here for the writing music right? The Harlequins writing music that is! Did anybody see the clue for todays theme? I did post it a bit later than usual today I’m afraid. But regardless, did anybody guess it? Well, todays musical theme today is Europe!

Ahh yes! The home of the European Union and one of the great melting pots of the world. Arguably the birthplace of this modern world we all share. Industrial revolutions, political upheaval, cultural phenomena and grave wars. These things and more have shaped this continent and its many nations in countless ways. The various peoples and cultures of the continent all have their own ways and beliefs, and this translates to their music. Even in the same genre, music from one nation can be vastly different from another. They all have their own identities, derived from their respective histories. So, obviously I’m not going to be able to share a band or artist from each European nation. As much as I’d like to, that would be a herculean feat. So instead I’m going to share five of my favourites from the continent and leave the door open for other potential lists in the near future. Sound good? I’m very glad!

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of Eurocentric artists the…. continent over?

And there we have it for another musical list! Did any of those artists take your fancy? Well, I suggest giving them all a try, they all deserve your time. Can you guess which European nation each of these artists comes from? And don’t just cheat by reading the website links! That’s naughty! A couple of them may even surprise you, to be honest.

So, let’s have some good old fashioned British social media nonsense! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Twitter and an account over on Instagram. Please follow me over on those pages too, it really helps! Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Thanks for everything!

Until next week my friends, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

My My, it has been a long while hasn’t it? It’s been about a year since my last post, my recent reblog notwithstanding.  This is something I am rather ashamed of, to be honest. I consider myself a writer but have committed myself to next-to no writing whatsoever. It is a great shame to me. I’d be quite surprised if many out there even remember the WorldofHarley or myself. If anybody does though, thank you kindly! You must be mad!

But alas, I am here to rectify all of that now. The Oldschool Harlequin is back and I will be sticking to it this time. It has been ,and will continue to be, a busy year but what is life without a challenge, no?

So I thought I’d return with one of my writing music posts since I am going to be listening to this stuff constantly while I burn the midnight oil. It is aural brain-fuel after all. It’s time for part 19! As always, I shall be displaying five music artists that I love to listen to and that inspire me and my writing. It can be any genre and sometimes I even surprise myself with the stuff I listen to.

So, without further ado, let us delve into the musical minds of masterly artists the world over!

So there we have it for another volume of the Harlequins writing music! It’s been too long since I made one of these and I am sorry that. I hope that you guys have enjoyed this edition and will continue to check into the blog going forward. Be sure to give all of these artists your love, they are all exceptional (at least in my opinion). Be sure to check out my previous writing music posts, you’ll be surprised with the wonders you may uncover.

Until next time, have a very crazy day!
